3. Where is the Victorville Courthouse?
4. Do I have to go to court if I have a lawyer?
Defendants who hire a private Victorville criminal defense lawyer should ask if they can stay home from court. In general, defendants in misdemeanor cases do not have to appear as long as their attorney shows up. But defendants in felony cases usually do have to appear even if their attorney is present.
Be aware that skipping a mandatory court appearance will result in the judge issuing a bench warrant for the defendant’s arrest.
5. What if I cannot afford legal representation?
Criminal defendants who do not have enough money to pay for private counsel will get a court-appointed lawyer from the San Bernardino County Public Defender. The office is located at 172 West 3rd Street, 2nd Floor, San Bernardino, CA 92415. People can email them here.
But defendants are cautioned to hire their own Victorville criminal defense attorney if they can. Private attorneys often can achieve more favorable resolutions than public defenders, who have insufficient time to thoroughly work on individual cases.
6. Who are the prosecutors?
Victorville criminal cases are prosecuted by the San Bernardino District Attorney’s Office. Its location is 303 West 3rd Street, San Bernardino, CA 92415-050. And its phone number is (909) 382-3800.
7. What are common crimes there?
Our Victorville criminal defense attorneys frequently handle the following cases:
- speeding tickets,
- domestic violence,
- car theft,
- sex crimes,
- drug crimes,
- violent crimes (including assault and battery), and
- white collar crimes.
8. Is it necessary that I have an attorney?
To maximize the chances of getting criminal charges significantly lessened or dropped, then it is necessary to hire an experienced Victorville criminal lawyer. Deputy district attorneys are far more likely to extend valuable plea bargains to defendants who have private representation.
And private attorneys will take the time necessary to comb through each case for all the evidence that could potentially get the matter dismissed. Public defenders simply lack the time to prioritize all their cases.
